Journey of a Cotton Blossom
Born amid the bigotry of the Deep South, mixed-race Joseph is a slave in all but name. Separated from his mother at birth, he yearns to run away from his loveless home and find her. It’s a journey that will take him from plantation to plantation and hardship to hardship, yielding joy, sorrow, and love along the way.
Years later, Joseph’s son, Isaiah, faces his own journey: coming to terms with his homosexuality. But society is still slow to accept change, and Isaiah fears rejection from even those closest to his heart.
From 1940s Mississippi to the civil rights era of the ’60s and the push for LGBT equality, Journey of a Cotton Blossom follows three generations of a family fighting for liberation. J. C. Villegas paints an eye-opening story that will inspire readers to open their hearts to love. Though her characters face different types of discrimination, they all draw strength from love and from their faith in God. Can Joseph find the mother he has never met? Can Isaiah survive injustice and adversity? And can they each learn to love themselves in the face of a world that challenges their right to exist?
Apple Blossom Time
Which is better, to live on the holding edge of the past, or the growing edge of the future?
Don Davis writes on the growing edge of the future. His novel,
A Place In The Story, is about choosing to live on the growing edge.
The seven sequels are more than just the best of serious fiction; they tell the story of Dr. Kelly, beloved granddad, who is also a down-to-earth philosopher of life, future-vision speaker and writer, and a most unusual professor.
Through A Place In The Story, we can shadow Dr. Kellys faith journey story and dare to dream our best dreams, then give them their best chance to happen as fellow pioneers of new tomorrows and the new sacred.
We live in the greatest age in all human history! We are indebted to the past, but we owe more to the future.
The rewards have never been greater for the human family to choose the identity markers of the Big Ten Universal Qualities to define our best future.
When we choose the Big Ten Universal Qualities for our identity markers our brain creates a kind of inner voice, a talisman, an alter ego, that magnetizes the identity markers that lead us to our higher self.

The high priest of Shame in Kherishdar is shattering--
--and the only thing between him and his ruin is the gentle Calligrapher, Farren Nai'Sheviet-osulkedi. When they are dispatched by the god of Civilization to Qenain, the House of Flowers, they find it in disorder, having fallen prey to a mysterious influence... an alien influence... a human one.
